Two positive HPT tests in the morning, but negative in afternoon...?

Two positive HPT tests in the morning, but negative in afternoon...?

HPT test results: Very early in pregnancy, the beta-HCG levels will be higher in the morning so will trigger the home urine testing kits to test positive sooner. Later in the day, a woman can drink enough water to dilute the hormone level down enough to get a negative test. This is only true in VERY early pregnancy. Once a woman gets to 3 weeks after conception, it doesn't matter time of day. ...Read more

A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early. ...Read more

Women often are not even aware they are pregnant and then they have a particularly hard blood flow or cramping. Neither of the above tests were probably wrong. I would bet you have had a miscarriage. ...Read more
